I found following example for Siemens bookmarks
binary message were converted from 7bit to 8 bit:
300204233802400A207777772E676F6F676C652E636F6D2F7868746D6C

text representation of binary stream:
0#8@ www.google.com/xhtml

Could somebody explain what is
"300204233802400A20" block prior to link?

Thanks a lot for help.

That's a new one by me. Have you tried it, does it work?

When you say that you converted from 7-bit to 8-bit, what was the original message in 7-bit encoding? I'm wondering if maybe there's some special UDH which got corrupted in this conversion.

it's not a bookmark, just link. :/

Yes, a lot of times people talk about sending "bookmarks", and they are really just sending a standard WAP Push.

Of course, it's not quite the same thing ...

... which raises an interesting question.

Bookmarks were part of the old Nokia/SonyEricsson OTA specification. And they were a good idea, it is very useful for a content provider to be able to send a link to an end-user which will automatically be saved in their bookmarks. (My experience was that only Nokia phones seemed to support them.)

Is this possible with OMA OTA?

I did a little re-reading of the specs, and yes it is ... however, in the real world, I'm only having luck sending them to SonyEricsson phones.

I sent the following XML settings:

<wap-provisioningdoc>
<characteristic type="APPLICATION">
<parm name="APPID" value="w2"/>
<characteristic type="RESOURCE">
<parm name="URI" value="http://www.bookmark1.com/"/>
<parm name="NAME" value="Bookmark 1"/>
</characteristic>
</characteristic>
</wap-provisioningdoc>

Sending to a SonyEricsson device, it sees this as a settings message, and adds a bookmark. (I tried including multiple bookmarks in the XML, and only the first one was recognised.)

With a Nokia Series 40 device, the device seems to think that this is a new browser settings message and tries to create a new empty settings profiles.

With a Nokia Series 60 device, the device seems to ignore the settings message.

I leave it as an exercise to others to try other devices ...

I do need to respond to a few other questions out here, but revisiting the issue of bookmarks has raised my curiosity a bit.

Newer Nokia phones do seem to still support the reception of bookmarks via the old format.

NowSMS doesn't allow you to send these bookmarks via the "Send XML Settings" interface. But there is the separate "Send WAP OTA Bookmark" option under "Send WAP OTA Settings". (And there is a simple URL interface where you can specify http://server:port/?PhoneNumber=xxxxxx&Text=Bookmark+Text&WAPBookmark=www.bookma rkurl.com/)
